Executing SSIS packages from a stored procedure

hi,

lets learn how to execute SSIS packages from a stored procedure

This can be done in two ways

a) Creating a job and calling the job from procedure

    b)Using Xp_cmdshell Extended stored procedure

Lets look at the first option

Step 1 : Create job in Sql server

 Job name : SSIS

go steps  on the left side of  job menu

Create new step

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Select the type and account to run the job

select the package location

use the simple procedure below

CREATE  PROCEDURE SSIS_EXE (@JOB_NAME VARCHAR(100))

AS

BEGIN 

EXEC MSDB..SP_START_JOB @JOB_NAME

END 

EXEC SSIS_EXE 'SSIS'
Job 'SSIS' started successfully.
 Go to job activity monitor and refresh depending upon the size of package wait for the success message


or user the below query to find the job status
SELECT S.NAME,H.JOB_ID,H.MESSAGE 

FROM MSDB..SYSJOBHISTORY H 

INNER JOIN MSDB..SYSJOBS S ON H.JOB_ID = S.JOB_ID 

WHERE S.NAME = 'SSIS'



Using Xp_cmdshell system stored procedure:
This is the best and the easy way 

we pass the parameter as the package location, package path, and server name to the 
stored procedure Before jumping in to the code let's make sure  the 
XP_Cmdshell extended procedure is turned on you machine 

Use the below mentioned procedure to turn on XP_CMDSHELL

-- To allow advanced options to be changed.
EXEC sp_configure 'show advanced options', 1
GO
-- To update the currently configured value for advanced options.
RECONFIGURE
GO

-- To enable the feature.
EXEC sp_configure 'xp_cmdshell', 1
GO
-- To update the currently configured value for this feature.
RECONFIGURE
GO
 
and here's the procedure

CREATE PROCEDURE SSIS_XP 
(@LOCATION VARCHAR(1000),@PATH VARCHAR(100),@SERVERNAME VARCHAR(40))

AS

DECLARE @CMD VARCHAR(1000)

BEGIN

IF @LOCATION = 'FILESYSTEM'

 IF(@SERVERNAME IS NULL OR PATINDEX('%[a-z]%',@SERVERNAME)= 0 )

 PRINT 'PLEASE PROVIDE VALID SERVER NAME'

 ELSE 

    BEGIN

           SET @CMD = 'DTEXEC /DTS "\FILE SYSTEM\'+@PATH +'" /SERVER "'+ @SERVERNAME 
                        + '" /CHECKPOINTING OFF  /REPORTING V'

    IF @LOCATION = 'MSDB' 

       IF(@SERVERNAME IS NULL OR PATINDEX('%[A-Z]%',@SERVERNAME)= 0 )

 PRINT 'PLEASE PROVIDE VALID SERVER NAME'

 ELSE 

   BEGIN

           SET @CMD = @CMD + 'DTEXEC /DTS "\MSDB'+@PATH +'" /SERVER "'+ @SERVERNAME
                      + '" /CHECKPOINTING OFF  /REPORTING V'

IF @LOCATION = 'FILE'  

 BEGIN

 SET @CMD = @CMD + 'DTEXEC /FILE'+@PATH +'.DTSX" /CHECKPOINTING OFF  /REPORTING V'

END

END

END

ELSE

BEGIN

PRINT 'PLEASE SPECIFY CORRECT PACKAGE LOCATION'

END 

--

EXEC MASTER..XP_CMDSHELL  @CMD

END

how to use
 EXEC SSIS_XP 'FILESYSTEM' ,'PACKAGES\PACKAGE' ,'--servername--' 

or
 EXEC SSIS_XP 'MSDB' ,'SSIS\PACKAGE1' ,'--servername--'
or

EXEC SSIS_XP 'FILE' ,'C:\Programfiles\mydocuments\SSIS\PACKAGE1' ,'--servername--' 


 
We can still have lot parameters like reporting , configurations, variable values 
to make it complicated

 Data driven package execution 

A) CURSOR

 Create a table 

CREATE TABLE [dbo].[PACKAGES](
	[PATH] [varchar](100) NULL,
	[LOCATION] [varchar](1000) NULL,
	[SERVERNAME] [varchar](40) NULL
) ON [PRIMARY]

Insert the records as required by the packages
crate a cursor to loop through the table for packages
DECLARE @PATH VARCHAR(1000)

DECLARE @LOCATION VARCHAR(50)

DECLARE @SERVERNAME VARCHAR(40) 

DECLARE DATA_PACKAGE CURSOR

FOR SELECT [PATH],LOCATION,SERVERNAME  FROM DBO.PACKAGES

OPEN DATA_PACKAGE

 FETCH NEXT FROM DATA_PACKAGE 

 INTO @PATH,@LOCATION,@SERVERNAME

WHILE @@FETCH_STATUS = 0 

BEGIN

 EXEC SSIS_XP @LOCATION,@PATH,@SERVERNAME

 FETCH NEXT FROM DATA_PACKAGE 

  INTO @PATH,@LOCATION,@SERVERNAME

END

 CLOSE DATA_PACKAGE

 DEALLOCATE DATA_PACKAGE

B) we can create a simple package to do above cursor action in SSIS if you don't 
like cursor

 step1) drag and drop a data flow task in control flow


and a OLEDB source and OLEDB command in data flow

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Map the parameters to the procedure
